USA Today had Pryor quoting in a statement: “To coach Jim Tressel, I’m sorry for what all went down, Pryor said. “I apologize for what all went down. I love you just like a father.”I regret the fact that you’re not there anymore, and I regret the fact I’m not there anymore.
In 2010 he was voted MVP and had outstanding numbers to match. Pryor completed 65% of his passes for 2,772 yards, 27 touchdowns to only 11 interceptions. He also rushed for 754 yards, with an average of 5.59 yards per carry, on 135 attempts with 4 touchdowns to go along with 2 receptions for 19 yards and 1 touchdown.
He would be a great role player as a punt returner, quarterback/running back, or even lined up as a receiver. Other than the quarterback position he sounds just like a player already under contract with the Saints.
I think if the Saints can get Pryor for the right price, and he is willing to learn the quarterback system in place in New Orleans, then the Saints would be crazy to pass on him.
Almost every player in college violates the NCAA rules at some point, it’s just that most never get caught. His actions really caused a lot of damage, but this will be his opportunity to show what kind of person he really is.
